Vishnu is one of the more recurring Deities

The Deity, known in Japan as Demon God (魔神 Majin) or Divinity (神性 Shinsei) is one of the most powerful races in the Shin Megami Tensei series, and is generally more difficult to fuse than most other races. They tend to be well-rounded demons, capable of using high level physical and magical attacks. In the real world, they are the chief deities of their pantheons; generally the lord of other gods and are associated with maintenance or creation.

They are generally either Light-Law or Light-Neutral. They first appeared as the former, but newer tendencies vary towards the latter. In the Devil Summoner series they are Light-Law.
